governor haley barber today and you had karl rove site hurricane sandy as being the thing that one stopped romney momentum but two, could have possibly caused mitt romney to lose the election. we all have to keep in mind that the polls show that this race is tight. even in the swing state polls the president might be leading most of them. but this race is tight. so the fact that the republicans are doing -- playing the blame game, we are not even at election day, tells you the mind-set of the gop and romney campaign. they are not terribly confident about tuesday's election results. >> but nia-malika, what candidate romney is not dealing with, most americans agree, mr. christie, governor christie, said. when you look at a brand new nbc poll, likely voters overwhelmingly say they approve of the president's handling of hurricane sandy. 67% approve. only 16% di disapprove. on top of that, in this brand new poll, majority of americans believe the economy is already turning around. 52% say we are recovering. both of these poll numbers are bad news for the republicans when they only have two days

. he's not bothered about hurricane sandy. >> exactly. mayor bloomberg has done some good things here but also showed an incredible lack of understanding in trying to continue the marathon. you have some people here who have power, media power, financial power, political power, and they're looking at this and we're seeing how they view these developments. that's unfortunate what they think. >> i want to add something to that, because what i like about this i guess in the middle of the nonsense of political partisanship is that it shows we still have it in us as americans when you see a democrat and a republican coming together from different sides of the aisle to solve an issue. we've had many issues. regardless of who is president or not, there are issues in the economy, in the debt, and immigration, with the war, why couldn't we celebrate and see this as a sign of hope instead of trying to over dramatize it. it's really unfortunate, whether it is through twitter of powerful people or even us in the media, to not look at this and see the positive in it and try to make it into a big o
, to the island today. here's what she said. >> we knew that staten island took a hard hit from hurricane sandy. so we want to make sure that the right resources are brought here as quickly as possible to help this community, which is so strong, recover more quickly. >> i can tell you that it's bitter cold. they have no electricity. one of the complaints is that all emphasis is on manhattan. i have a friend who's camped out in lower manhattan. they have no electricity in lower manhattan. con ed is making that emphasis to make electricity be restored. all you see is the trucks can get stuff out now that they have showed up. you don't see the utility company putting the electricity on. it is being restored in other parts. but the area hardest hit is still waiting. neil: what is remarkable is that a lot of local officials, the republican governor, a democratic president, each congratulating the other. each congratulating local officials that they are on top of it. that things are getting better. but to look at the scenes and the people with whom you have talked to today, they might want to hold th
